The residents of North Arm Cove and surrounding areas have once again proved they can punch above their weight when it comes to fund raising, with a total of $2,050 raised at the recent Biggest Morning Tea.

Around 70 guests enjoyed a traditional Devonshire Tea and browsed the sale tables. There were so many fine entries in the Lavender and Lace craft competition that the Judges had a pretty tough time deciding on the six winners. They were Cheryl Fleming from Karuah, who won in two categories, Kay Furley, Annette Searle, also from Karuah, Joan...

That's the theme of this year's Biggest Morning Tea where you will be presented with an amazing array of hand crafted coathangers, cushions and doorstops.

Last year the Teddy Bear’s Picnic raised over $2,000 and a good proportion of that amount was from the sale of hand crafted bears and dolls. So this year, the Stitch Gatherers group decided to come up with some items that would not only be saleable, but useful around the home.

There's nothing more pleasurable than finding a hidden treasure at your local op-shop, so when Kay Furley of the North Arm Cove Stitch Gatherers group found an unfinished craft project for the princely sum of $3.00 she snapped it up eagerly.

Imagine Kay's dismay when she got it home and found the instructions were seven pages long and pretty darn complicated. Kay brought the project along to the next meeting and all the ladies agreed that it was a daunting task. Imagine their surprise when at the next meeting Kay presented...
